Hope Cemetery
          Each year visitors from all over the world tour Hope Cemetery in Barre, Vermont to see some of the finest examples of memorial design and granite craftsmanship ever produced. 

          Situated in the "Granite Capital of the World" Hope Cemetery presents a rich and distinguished history of memorial art in stone, one of the oldest expressions of American Culture.  For these reasons, Hope exerts a profound influence on the memorial art of other cemeteries throughout the country. 

          Hope Cemetery was established in 1895 and originally contained fifty-three acres.  Since that time it has expanded to a total of  sixty-five acres.  Edward P. Adams, a nationally known landscape architect, created the original plan for the cemetery.  Each new section of the grounds is the result of expert counsel and modern design.  The careful planning and architectural standards of Hope reflect the most progressive principles in cemetery development. 

          Cemeteries are judged on their attractiveness to the community, their ease of maintenance and the opportunities they provide for families to memorialize and honor life. Hope Cemetery has achieved outstanding success in fulfilling these standards.  Below is a current map of Hope Cemetery.
